In accordance with established practice and the reporting mechanisms in place for the monitoring of prompt payments, Government Departments and public sector bodies are required to publish quarterly composite reports on performance in relation to payments to suppliers on their respective websites. Particulars relating to the payments made by my Department and the statutory agencies under its remit are contained on my Department`s website (www.dcya.gov.ie). Information relating to the period April to June 2012 is being compiled at present and will be uploaded on the website in the very near future.
